Diatomaceous Earth You Can Trust
You use diatomaceous earth around your home, in your garden and even on your pets. That's why we obsess so much about how we produce our diatomaceous earth. We only source our DE from the high quality mines here in the US, so that you can feel confident that you're getting the very best.
Where Does DE Come From?
Diatomaceous earth is made up of tiny fossilized diatoms (plankton) that have accumulated over millennia in fresh water lakes. These pure deposits are mined and ground into a fine powder that is naturally high in silica and other minerals. It is this chalky white powder that we call diatomaceous earth.
What is Diatomaceous Earth Used For?
Pure food grade diatomaceous earth can be used for a large number of different purposes. Here's a small selection of uses:
- A natural health supplement. Being high in silica, DE supports the growth of healthy hair, skin, nails and joints
- A stain remover. DE can absorb more than twice it's weight in liquid. It is effective at lifting stains on carpet and furniture as well as grease and oil spills on concrete floors.
- A cleaning booster and natural exfoliant. DE has a very porous structure, allowing it to add a gentle scrub to your cleaners or even skincare products
- A natural deodorizer. DE can be applied directly to your pets coat to limit odors. It also works well in the bottom of your trash can to keep unwanted smells at bay
- Preserve dry food storage. DE can be mixed in with any dry food storage including grains, flour, legumes, rice, and corn. Because DE absorbs liquids, it will help keep your food dry and uncontaminated
At 10 pounds, it's easy to transport yet big enough for large projects. This recycled paper bag can be easily opened and then folded shut to keep your DE pure.
No Additives - Food Grade DE
Our DE is sourced from one of the cleanest freshwater food grade mines and screened for impurities to produce consistently pure diatomaceous earth.
Packaged with stainless steel equipment to prevent any contaminants from entering your DE during the manufacturing process.
Registered for Organic Use
Independently certified by the Organic Materials Review Institute (OMRI) for use in certified organic production, handling, and processing.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
So here's my story: I generously sprinkled this stuff all over my carpet - like tons - with the intention of vacuuming it up in a few days (why not? I live alone. No biggie). I didn't really understand the people that warned me about the possibility of it ruining a vacuum cleaner. Ruin? Really? That's silly. And then.... I kid you not... the powder started shooting out through the top of my vacuum and the dust was EVERYWHERE, all over the house, in my eyes and lungs, really really bad. The vacuum stopped working after that. Ugh.
Did it kill the silverfish? I think so.
I then spent a good 5 hours cleaning my house, and put the bag of DE in the garage.
2 months later... for some unknown reason, I decided to read the reviews of this product again. I read all the raving reviews about health benefits. And yet, I still couldn't get myself to put this "bug killer" in my body. But one reviewer changed my mind... and so, I went out to my colossal sized bag and put a few cups into a jar and brought it in the house. That was yesterday. I took one teaspoon with water and waited (waited for what? To die? To get a stomach ache? I don't know, but I waited) and.... nothing happened. Hmmm. Then this morning since I was still alive, I did it again, but this time with 2 teaspoons. Still... nothing. A few hours later, I noticed that I could lift my left arm over my head!!! Now, you're thinking "so what", right? It's a big deal because I haven't been able to do that in about 3 years (I have a partially torn rotator cuff). Now I can lift my arm? That's amazing. And that's on Day 2 of taking it. So... I plan to take it for about 2 weeks straight and then see how I feel. I'll update this after my experiment is done. :)
1 cup Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth
1/2 cup Neem Powder
1/2 cup Yarrow Powder
20 Drops Eucalyptus Essential Oil *Leave out the essential oil if using for cats*
Mix all ingredients together and put in a shaker top container like an empty baby powder bottle or salt shaker
Apply in a well ventilated area or outside, try not to let your pet inhale it
Apply from head to tail along your pets spine in dry conditions. Brush your pets fur going the opposite direction so the powder comes in contact with the skin. Avoid the eyes and nose. Rub the powder on the belly and legs. Try to get the flea powder on as much skin as you can. I also found the fleas seem to like the tail, the area right above the tail and the belly/groin area so I made sure to pay extra attention to those areas to get them well covered.
How often to apply flea powder?
To use this as a general repellent (with no serious flea infestation), applying once a month during active flea season (end of spring/summer) is sufficient. If the pet gets a bath or gets wet, it will need to be reapplied.
If you have a flea infestation:
You will need to apply more often, depending on how bad of an infestation you are dealing with. I applied every day until I saw no more traces of fleas (now I’m just using it as maintenance). Some are successful with applying as little as once a week, but others need it more often – it just depends on the level of infestation. Also remember to reapply if your pet gets wet (important!).
If you have a flea infestation, you will also need to apply this flea powder to your floors, windowsills, door sills, pet bedding, sofa, etc. Focus your efforts where your pet spends the most amount of time, since fleas and their eggs will be the most concentrated in those areas. Just apply a light dusting to the areas in your house and leave it there overnight. Vacuum in the morning or sometime the next day. Do this once a week for 4 weeks if you have a flea infestation.
If you got through all this and you are like me and had nothing to lose and are ready to set your house on fire and cut your losses then please try this. I was desperate and felt so sorry for my animals and this was a miracle. Good luck everyone!!
Top reviews from other countries
By day 3 there was a significant decrease in bugs. I changed the yellow sticky traps and by week 1.5 I maybe see 1 - 3 bugs flying around a week. I'm going to assume in a week or 2 more that they will be ALL dead.
If you have a fungus gnat problem, but this product!
I gave this 3 out 5 stars for taste because I didn't use it to eat.
Also used the powder on itchy rash on top of my hand. It relieved the itch right away.
I also mix it with my shake every morning. It tends to keep my weight in check.
